I've always avoided sequels, unless I felt there was something fresh.
I'd like to add that negotiating is not something to be avoided or feared - it's an everyday part of life.

I can't read notes well, but I can hear something and sing a harmony to it automatically.

Sometimes I'll write something that's purely autobiographical, and sometimes pure fiction, and sometimes a mix.
